You want to s/cure/detect/ ?

I guess you are confusing the goal and the root cause of the issue.
The problem was that memory leaks protection cannot apply its remedy
to those leaks, and the issue is solved only if it is able to do that.

Being able to detect them is just a part of the issue (the root cause
of it). If it fixes the whole issue, it is good.

Renames in bugzilla do happen, but otherwise I'd prefer to focus on
the changelog file. That is what people read.
